Admission Related Appeals

Appeal Deadline:

October 01, 2021 is the last day to submit an admissions appeal for late admission for the Spring 2022 term.

Admission decisions are based on an evaluation of the self-reported data submitted on the application and information provided on transcripts. Appeals may also be considered for missed-deadline considerations. Below is information and steps in submitting an appeal:

Appeal Process

You may be able to appeal your admission decision if you were not offered admission such as:

  • Not meeting CSU eligibility as an incoming Freshman or Transfer
  • Missing deadlines for applying or submitting required information (transcripts, test scores, etc.)
  • Reconsideration of an admission decision 

All requests must include documentation related to the extraordinary circumstances you wish to be considered for the appeal.

Applicants not submitting an application within the deadline may be considered under an appeal. Follow the instructions on the form for consideration.

Submitting Your Appeal:

  • A limit of one appeal per application term. Decisions rendered are final.
  • All appeals must be received by CSUB within 15 days of date of the “missed deadline,” or “deny” notification/communication from the CSUB Office of Admissions.
Appeal packets should include:
  • Appeal Request Form (PDF Form)
